Chapter 170: My Heart Will Go On

80s & 90s pop

Before I was allowed to buy CDs or have my own radio in my room, this is the music I heard around the house and in my mom’s car, the true music of my youth. The peak of Triple-A radio included mellower late period hits from stars like Elton John and Duran Duran, and quirky yet moving pop from the likes of 4 Non Blondes and Natalie Merchant. Was I a brainwashed six year old held hostage to my parents’ tastes, or is “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues” genuinely one of John’s best?
